Historias extraordinarias

Mariano Llinás Argentina, 2008

EdieMaas's rating of the film Extraordinary Stories

Camerawork, acting, sound design were all mostly mediocre and IT TOTALLY DIDN'T MATTER. That's the genius. The reliance on editing/music/post-production-in-general as the primary narrative device works in as iconoclastic & astonishing a way here as ever in film history. Then fashioning a cinematic infrastructure out of assorted literary conventions...? Badass, smart af, DIY directing. Look forward to more from him...
